Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez are JOHNNYSWIM, a new bluesy folk duo that have already started drawing favorable comparisons to The Civil Wars. The band’s Home Vol. I EP is both haunting and romantic, and has been in heavy rotation around the offices here at VH1 over the last few months. Big things seem to be on the horizon for the two — case in point, JOHNNYSWIM performed for Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, and an audience of a few million people on the fourth hour of Today this morning.
The married couple sang “Home” in front of an audience of a few hundred people at the College of Charleston to promote the city’s upcoming Spoleto Festival, which runs from May 24 through June 9. Be sure and keep an eye out for this exciting new act!
